Spin Dad’s Wheels On Father’s Day

For immediate release
1 September 2008

Spin Dad’s Wheels On Father’s Day

Instead of showering Dad with the same old gifts of socks, aftershave or golf balls, this Father’s Day spin his wheels with a gift from Save the Children’s Wish List.

Our Wish List has many gift ideas that improve the lives of children from some of the world’s poorest places. A bike ensures a child can ride the long distance to school rather than walking the two hour journey by foot; a set of sports equipment will give them the chance to play.

Donate the gift of your choice and Dad will receive a personalised card and a Wish Certificate. There are also medical kits, toys – even a yak (vital when it comes to providing milk and wool). Invest in any one of these and you and your Dad will be helping those children who need it most. They’ll love you for it – and so will he.

To find out more and order online visit: www.wishlist.org.nz or www.savethechildren.org.nz.

Save the Children works in more than 120 countries and has more than 85 years experience in working with the poorest communities. For more information on the work we do, visit our website.

Gordon Campbell: On Labour’s Campaign Launch
